AGP backward compatable?

  CAPES 21:06 11 Oct 2007

Hi all, i'm looking for a cheap graphics card for my kids pc, i have found an 8X AGP card, but i dont know if the slot is 8X would there be a problem if the slot was only 4X, or would it just run slightly slower?

It will run at 4x if the slot is compatible, but there are 3 different AGP standards and 2 voltage ratings.
Use Everest or Belarc for a definitive ID of the AGP slot in the machine you want to upgrade.
